TWILIGTH AT A LITTLE HARBOR


TWILIGTH AT A LITTLE HARBOR


This Time no one’s looking for love
Between the sheds, the old houses, in twitter
Of poles and rigging. A bout, a prau forever out of water
Puffs and snorts, thingking there’s something it can catch hold of;
With a flick, the day brushes at the gloom, then swims silkily
To meet temptations yet to come. Nothing moves
And now the sand the sea are a sleep, the waves are gone

That’s all. I’m alone. Walking,
Combing the cape, still drowning the hope
Of getting to the end of it and just once saying goodby to everything
From the fourth beach, embracing the last, the final sob of all.

CHAIRIL ANWAR
1946
